Sony Reader line selling out, everywhere Sony has noted today that their 'Reader' line of e-readers is selling out, worldwide, with supply dwindling for some models.
The company's two high-end models, the Touch and Daily, will most likely be sold out before Christmas.

Without giving a specific number, Sony would only say that they are selling "millions" of the gadgets.

Surprisingly, the company says the cheaper low-end Pocket was not selling well and supply was heavy.

Sony has strong competition in the market, with market leaders Amazon and Barnes & Noble continuously adding features and dropping prices.

Considering you can directly drop books into the eReader like a USB device I'd like to know how they will manage that. You can also use Calibre so your post is completely false and I am sure you don't actually have a Sony eReader also.
